willis. signs of desperation for the obama campaign as polls show the president's support eroding. today's objective, youn voters. president-elect counted on them to get h elected, but now he is learning that they are not full of hope for him as they were last time. probably because while he is in the white house many young people are still living at their parents' house, facing fewer job opportunities. the president today trying to gin up his base among young voters with interviews at mtv and rolling stone. will it work? here to talk about it top political journalist and commentator, columnist for the new york post and human events editor and radio talk-show host. welcome. great to have you here. i'll go to you first. you know, this in a tv interview we were listening to this afternoon, and the questions are unbelievable of softballs. it's like so, what was your first date with michele like? i mean, is this what passes for journalism with the president? >> i think so. a lot of journalists are on his side, so they're giving him an easy shot, but the thing is he's ving a hard time with yo
, folks, the latest rasmussen data tracking poll, here it is, romney 49, obama 47 the same as the past three days and i take it all that i said about governor romney losing some momentum. he's kept that 2 point gap for the the last three days, above president obama. got it? i think i've cleared myself. we've made a lot of comparisons between 2012 and 1980 and now another one, gas lines, people in new york and especially new jersey lining up for literally hours. many stations don't have power at all and some have run out of the gas they've got and they can pump and they don't know when the tankers can get in to give them more gas. so, should stations be allowed to raise their prices, let the market decide who gets gas and who doesn't? all rise, judge andrew napolitano is here, i don't-- >> you never give me the easy ones. . [laughter] >> you realize of course, that if gas stations were allowed to charge what they wanted to charge, and to, to get rid of the gas lines, there would be a revolution, you realize that. >> do you realize that if buyers were willing to pay what they agreed to
. it is a poll taken in russia. that's right, all whopping 41 percent of russians want president obama reelected. only 8%, 8% back romney. oh, my goodness. they have cancer that sort of things. those romney supporters may want to kind of watch their backs given what is happening in russia these days. romney will have history on his side heading into next week's election. the republicans have won every single presidential election on november 6th. going back to 1860's when abraham lincoln beat democrat stephen douglas. only five days to get that election in and see if the street continues. i don't see why they don't just call the election based on that historical imperative. new reports tonight that dnc chairman w. wasserman shultz got involved in dated altercation with the florida police officer. he asked her to stop blocking traffic. wasserman shultz was greeting voters outside a polling station in the city of at ventura earlier this week. the policeman asked her to move to the sidewalk, pretty please. she reportedly refused to argue with the officer and the city's mayor he showed up to just a
other hypothetical. >> he said that russia poll earlier. i think it's notable that obama is only at 41%. 41-8. big margin, but he's under 50 and undecideds tend to break for the challenger. lou: to you want to rebut his analysis. >> i'll leave him to analyze their boat in russia. something interesting to watch. there continues to be an enthusiasm gap between republicans and democrats. barack obama ahead of mitt romney. even are slightly at which means for my party you have to get our enthusiasm level up to match the ground game. lou: and you're doing an excellent job of that. >> exactly correct. exactly correct. lou: he would like to say that one more time. >> exactly correct. he who turns out and get his vote out wins the election. the problem the democrats have is that may not be able to replicate the same kind of turnout as they had in 2008. very hard, particularly among young people and others who wer so involved. lou: you are one of the country's leading strategists. you understand these polls better than almost anyone. give us your sense of what is happening right now? our indepe
for president obama, and we see it reflected in the polls as well. if you take a look, allup says 15 percent of the people had voted early. they were breaking for romney by 52-46. this week to reports 19 percent of those surveyed said they had voted. a break for romney by 50-43. obama won the early vote last time around, according to puke, by 19 points or was winning at this point by 19 points and now he's losing it by seven. that is more than enough to flip the election. lou: two things, if we can go back to your board, immediately apparent command one is that there is a 5-4 margin if i read correctly, democrats over republicans in the early vote in 2008 that ratio was over two times -- two times. >> almost two to one. and we are talking here about less than a 5-4 margin. we are talking about 98,000 difference on the base, and this number will continue to grow. there will be probably, the republicans are probably going to narrow that gap between the two to somewhere around 85 or 90,000 votes. and i repeat, on election day is a starkly that republicans have carried the vote, even when presid
tied with president obama at 49%. nationally the dead heat can be seen across a white canvas of polls. the real clear politics bulbuls has the two men separated tonight by a mere tenth of a percenge point to. the rasmussen reports daily tracking poll has the race at 48%. the abc ashington post tracking poll shows the governor taking a one point lead after trailing b one yesterday. those of the two most recent national polls. and while the polls are tight, they are not always accurate or indicative of the of come. either candidate could win this election by a sizable margin, if you considea sizable margin to be two or 3 percent, perhaps, regardless of what these polls are saying today. one group or demographic, like independent vters, could swing the election in the waning hours of the campaign. and what should worry the obama campaign with their race so tight that you can hear is quilt is not the unraving cover-up on been gauzy or a bust response to a major east coast hurricane. what should worry the obama campaign is that this race is all about the conomy, his record, and responsibil

daily tracking presidential tracking poll shows that governor romney has 49%, president obama 47%. scott rasmussen joins us now by phone. scott, the main question at this point it looks like this romney momentum has stalled? >> well, the race has been pretty stable, you know, governor romney had a good move after his first debate performance, took the lead nationally, made a lot of gains in some swing states and the race hasn't changed too much. it's very close with a slight edge to governor romney nationally and it may all come down to two states, ohio and wisconsin. charles: and speaking of which, those polls, you know, listen, over the weekend. you've got a lot of competition, and some of them i haven't heard of before, but seem to be a zillion and one polls to give the information, how are you feeling about the two key swing states now? >> i think both are too close to call. if i had to guess i think wisconsin is a little better for the republicans and a little better for the democrats. when i ook at the polls that are out there, in ohio, the rate, the numbers range from very from e

rasmussen tracking poll shows governor romney and president obama in a dead heat tied right at 48-48. there you have it. we're now just what, four days before the election and still no one has a really clear idea who is going to win. i've got an opinion, but nobody has a clear opinion in the mass of the public. fox news though has pointed out three numbers that could favor mitt romney. first, favorability, despite millions of dollars worth of negative ads and romney is polling around 50% in terms of likability. early voting, this is a good indicator of voter enthusiasm and romney has gotten half of early votes accord to go pew research. half of them and independents, latest poll shows romney 7% lead among independent voters. what do you say, monica. >> that independent number is significant and may actually climb. when you look at independent voting going on now, early voting and polling among independents, in the swing states. romney is leading obama by 7 in ohio, and a whopping 21 among independents in virginia and 5 among independents in florida. now, some of those numbers may
is either going to stay home of four for the challenger. obama at 46% shows he is slipping into underdog status as we speak. gerri: the me show you another, as long as you're talking polls, we have one, the national average. and obama is at 47%. i did he'd. gretchen, you know, here is what i don't understand. i thought that people made up their mind as the campaign progressed, but it seems that most people, like you, who are expert watchers of this campaign say lots of people change their mind right up to voting day. >> to we had seen that in the past. we have had some people who did not even make up their minds until election day. i think this election, you have seen a lot of people make up their minds early this election will come down to the few people who make up their minds over the course of the past weekend coming into the next few days. president obama has done with this hurricane is acted presidential, taking care of business. people don't look at one event but past history and the past four years. he has not always displayed that same type. he is not even saving as from the fis
for it. president obama and mitt romney are using it to make their closing arguments but which one will voters believe one ahea whd to the polls? former economic advisor to george h. w. bush and karen, an advisor to president obama and former ambassador to the organization of economic cooperation and development. welcome to you both. with this move people who are on e fence? >> no. anybody on the fence understands the u.s. economy is weak. sure, you can say 7.9% unemployment is an improvement. i can't even say that is an improvement. the obama administration pledged they would drop down upon the great 5.4%. that certainly didn't happen. i'm curious as voters look at the newspapers tomorrow will the newspapers tell the truth that in this report touted as being positive wages went down. hourly earningwent down, hours worked went down. this is really a sad commentary if we have to interpret this somehow positively. gerri: clearly we have a long ways to go, wants you to hear something the president said today on the campaign trail and respond. here is the president. >> 2008 we were in
away and all polls show it's a dead heat. the romney's outstripping obama by a long shot in 2012 race. >> if you are having dinner with mitt romney or you ran into him on a bus, like he's living on a bus. [laughter] the first thing anyone would say is oh, you're the guy that makes his.right on the roof of the car. after that, it is game over. >> mitt romney said he will not release any more tax returns. he said he guarantees that he peewees 13% every year. that is not a tax, that's a tip, okay? >> mitt romney told kelley river that he tries were as little as possible when he goes to bed. this explains why he said he's eager he is eager to become the first minute when she. >> just a few of the jobs and it turns out that most of the wisecracking was at romney's expense. care to break it down is racial demagoguery from the 70s to obama. tell me what to make of these numbers that we just talked about? remark we are talking about think that the democrats had done. and they thought, well, that's funny. anyone who knows anything about politics, they want you to think about what happens, and
voters, rich, before you were born, young man, they would go to the polls through broken glass to vote for him. i'm not sure the same could be said for mitt romney or president obama. in an event like this where a number of states could be looking very, very tough weather conditions that would make it difficult to get to the polls, whose voters are more jazzed to ensure they do? >> the biggest enthusiasm gap we've seen is one from 2008 for president obama compared to that now for president obama. the economy's not doing well, voters reagent to that, and so you're beginning to see roars -- reports of the republican enthuse yam. when i was in school, teachers used to tell us you got to pray, cross your fingers for rain so all the elderly folks don't vote against the school budget because they don't have kids in the scol anymore. neil: on the notion, it's a given -- being political correct here, thee storms could benefit romney more than the president. we'll see how it goes. i see the logic to it. what do people do in states who can't vote. extend voting hours? is this a vote extending in
business network. giving you the power to prosper. melissa:. lori: the obama administration says it is still investigating the attacks in at the consulate in benghazi but with days before the election the american people are unhappy with the job done there. according to latest "fox news poll", 39% approve the job obama is doing on libya and 47% voters disapprove. lou dobbs is here. you've been a outspoken critic on the handling of the benghazi situation so what does the poll reflect? >> the poll reflects the sentiment, without knowing the details, understand that this administration has stonewalled, refused to be forthcoming not details but even broad brush strokes what was going on in benghazi before the attack. how much warning we had. it was, it's, it's a time for frankly, this administration, it is past time. the american people decided in large measure, i don't know what the percentage is, but an administration that won't be forthcoming, that has been contradictory, unrelentingly revisionist in its statements, basically amounts to a lie, to the american people. and i think t
for mitt romney's momentum in the polls. as we saw today, leading for the first time in several weeks. this hurts him in the short run and serve meals president obama, assuming nothing bad happens. if you have a gap like president bush was tagged with during hurricane to treat it could be an issue if the mother right now it favors president obama. really both campaigns are worried about how it will affect early voting internal election day. gerri: some people out there saying that, you know, the people who could be kept from voting booths are people on the east coast and in the northeast a particular hair tends to vote democratic. now, to you, do you think that is an issue? >> well, it could happen, but the outcome, if that were to happen, it is unlikely that it would change any of the lights are of town. he's going to win new york by a zillion points regardless of what the turnout is. what it could do is to press democratic turnout enough that he loses the popular vote and when the electoral vote. that could happen. now, i think it's unlikely. things will hopefully be back to normal
positive for obama and ed was. the reason is, the president has been on hand down a slide in the polls. what he has lacked is and the visuals in the mainstream media have been very good. his rhetoric has been more inclusive today. so it could help him. but it is right, we won't know until the weekend. lou: inclusive. i saw a giant bear hug. governor christie. and president obama, i mean, they are in a love fest here. what is that all about? >> two things. the president needs to get back to bipartisanship. with governor christine not selected for vice-president in add tight race, he needs democrats. lou: and so that is the deal. >> absolutely. i think it really, really helps obama. sandy must be a democrat, is all i can think. you know, that call attention to the rule, just crucial role of the federal government, fema at this time. lou: what have they done? >> it's what they're going to do. what they're already doing. lou: let me ask you this. and i have heard this. governments are great, but all the responding agencies are either state or local. they are the ones to decide how much san
into disarray. both candid it's scrapping their event schedules and polling agencies such as gallops suspending their operations, at least in terms of the daily tracking. governor romney today focused on fund-raising for the victims of the deadly storm while president obama canceled his events through wednesday to monitor the aftermath in response to hurricane sandy from the white house. we have team coverage here tonight. rick leventhal on the devastated jersey shore. shannon green on the storm damage in virginia, and ed henry tonight from the white house on the storm's political impact and the campaigns that are, tonight, frozen in place. many east coast residents heard or read weather forecasts and there's speculation about hybrid storms of the hurricane and nor'easter, perhaps, a super storm, as sandy approached, and they were understandably skeptical of what often turns out to be exaggerated meteorological storm forecasts. tonight they and millions of others find themselves suffering through what has turned out to be the mass devastation, wreckage, and misery that had been forecast for the
hit the hardest and it matters a lot to president obama who is beating romney in the polls. it ties florida for the third most electoral votes, 29. new york can establish an additional day for elections within 20 days of november 6th. if there's an emergency. it's already warned voters that polling sites may change because of the storm. we have asked the state board whether or not it might be considering changing dates for elections in hard-hit areas of the state. cheryl, so far no response. cheryl: i mean obviously we know new york and new jersey are now major disaster areas quote unquote, are there other states where delaying the vote could possibly happen on the state level, peter? peter: we have been researching this all morning and have not found any so far. and frankly i think it is because we are still in the throes of the storm and a lot of these governors and state officials are just trying to figure out how to protect people and their property and their transportation systems, economy, etc. but i don't -- this issue was raised by the fema director in a phone call with repo
a little bit more normal. you will get back up on the campaign trail, president obama has benefitted from this in high view, romney was gaining momentum but it stopped poll clamor and all talk. i think that helped president. on the other hand, mitt romney had more on the ground time in ohio, the crucial state and has been able to shake more hands and meet more voters directly in the buckeye state. neil: you mentioned this appearance tomorrow with governor chris christie. i'm sure not governor's intention to praise the president to point that many say he hurt the republican nominee mitt romney. but governor kristy looking out for -- chris christie said he is looking out for the folks in his state. commending speediness of support for new jersey. you have that image of them, touring a lot of the areas, atlantic city, maybe, some of the really hard hit areas, that will be an indelible image. >> there is nothing you can do about it, governor chris christie has done the right thing, and barack obama is president, you do not' to overdue the praise. but, i mean, you are right, a photo of barack
, d.c. how do you cast that election. >> sandy carve ad path in states mostly decided president obama is well ahead in connecticut, new jersey and. some officials say sandy interrupted absentee voting in number of place although the state says there will be no problems on election day. ohio polling is in margin of error and there are pouter outages. election officials say there is currently power at all voting locations. they say early voting is moving smoothly. both candidates are in the buckeye states state with a full day of campaigning today. >> got anxious and attacking me day in and day out. attacking me does not create an dend today for him. we have a plan to get the economy going. >> what the governor is offering sure ain't changed. giving more power back to the biggest banks isn't change. leaving millions without health insurance isn't change. another five trillion dollar tax cut that favors the wealthy isn't change. >> they are pitching their closing arguments for president obama, a theme of economic progress and that he needs more time to finish the job. for governor romney
in the need to get to the polls. with that said, some concern in the polls for the campaign. then seen in the seven surveys in the last two days, of ohio that shows that it's still a margin race within the margin of error, but mr. obama is with a slight lead with and that margin so the romney campaign has begun looking at expanding the battlefield where the playing field to make you will, by going after states like minnesota and michigan and pennsylvania, states that have been in the blue column for many, many weeks just as the polls tighten up in the debate nationwide, it was a battleground state that seems to have taken a little longer, but in those three states it's also a margin race. the romney campaign spending money trying to provide additional discussions to get to the 270 needed electoral college votes in order to win. very, very tight. confidence and optimism. when republicans will have to get to the polls come tuesday. neil: i know it's hard to hear there. i understand if you can't. are they concerned that maybe the storm to make it had been a helluva lot worse. obviously th
